Maybe it’s not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it’s about starting over and creating something better.
I will admit I like looking into other people’s grocery carts. What other people eat is just so fascinating to me. I bet I turned a few heads tonight when I checked out buying a package of Oreos, brownie mix, and chocolate chip cookie dough. Yikes, what a sugar load! It’s all for a good cause because I am making my co-worker Slutty Brownies for his birthday tomorrow.
Tonight I am sticking to a much healthier option. I love being able to slightly change a recipe and get a whole new option out of it. For dinner I turned my Black Bean Burger recipe into…
Black Bean Tacos
1 (15.25 ounce) can black beans
1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
¼ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup quick oats
1. In a food processor, combine beans, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
2. Stir in breadcrumbs and oats.
3. Crumble mixture over greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
4. Fill taco shells with mixture and desired toppings.
It amazes me how different one recipe can be depending on what it is paired with.
I do not miss the meat one bit in the tacos. The bean filling is bursting with Mexican flavors.
They could even be misconstrued to be meat-filled because they are so hearty.
I honestly can’t say which version of the recipe I liked more. They were both amazing in their own right.
Have you ever tried a vegan taco?
